LAKE UPDATE. The NDG&F has announced new and updated lake maps for many lakes throughout the state. With expanded technology and new surveying contours are better defined for a number of waters throughout the state.
SHOOTING STARS. The Quadrantid meteor shower is the last major sky event for a few months, and the show will peak on the night of Jan. 3 and into the morning of Jan. 4. With weather looking relatively clear for sky watching, it might be a pretty good show out on the ice that night – so stay late for the bite and the meteors!
EARLY RISER. The sun begins to come up earlier and earlier after today, and by the end of the month we’ll have gained almost an additional hour of sunlight. Talk about looking at the bright side of things!
